Church to hold blessing ceremony for AR-15s

A Pennsylvania church is holding a blessing ceremony for AR-15 assault rifles not far from a local elementary school.

The blessing will take place at the World Peace and Unification Sanctuary in Newfoundland next Wednesday morning, and around 600 people are expected to attend.

The church is known for its pro-gun stance, and for their support of the AR-15 in particular, believes that the rifle is the Biblical “rod of iron.”
